Kariko ono_Karina Antonczak. At present I live and work in Warsaw. I am a painter, architect, a woman and a mother. In my portfolio I present to you my world dating from my son's birth. This was a time when I abandoned autocad lines to fulfill my potential in art; I visualise monotonic landscapes, stripped of dominant elements, which are nostalgic for simplicity, purity and clarity of divisions. I work on space visualisation of personal, therapeutic value and imagine nature for my imagination’s sake: to see the horizon and great, empty space. My paintings are open, symmetric compositions which are interrupted by one particular detail. They are afterimages with a taste of melancholy and a sentimentality about the greatness of nature. I try to create my own record through which I can transfer energy, similar to that one of quiet time near the surface of a lake. This is the always present theme in my art, as a way of an active relaxation, regeneration; a chorus between verses. I do not paint from nature, I create an image from a bank of memories and from there they go on to abstraction. I show a vision of a constructed world with my own words. To me, the relation between colours, lines, their weight, tensions and the forces ruling the composition are important. My paintings are an analysis of the relationships between space, mass, colour, surface and force.
